The day has arrived, Beatlemaniacs! Forty-five years after sending teenage girls into hysterical fits on The Ed Sullivan Show, the boys from Liverpool have adopted (with a little help from their friends at Apple and Harmonix) their timeless tunes for a new generation: Today sees the release of the videogame The Beatles: Rock Band and remasters of all their studio albums, which EW critics Jeff Jensen and Simon Vozick-Levinson call “irresistible” and “revelatory,” respectively. Double fab! Forget Woodstock nostalgia — if you choose one Baby Boomer watershed to reconnect with this year, make it the Beatles.
Your own excitement for this revolutionary 09/09/09 celebration is a given (right?), so we ask now: What ELSE is on your Must List this week? List up to three items from current TV/movies/music/books/games/online. And be sure to explain WHY you’ve made your selection, too — we love to hear your thoughts! Don’t forget your e-mail address, in case we decide to use your submission in the magazine. Deadline is Thursday, Sept. 10 at noon ET.
